Definitely! There will be featured vans outside the venue that will be open for tours, and you'll also have a chance to show off your van and discuss your ideas with the other attendees.
Overnight parking is available at the venue (please be respectful though, it's not an official campground).
Yes. There will be Q&A time for each of the major topics covered, as well as breaks throughout the event where you can get your specific questions answered.
While this workshop shares the structure and many of the details of the Cargo Van Conversion Course online training, the workshop will be more interactive with Q&A sessions and product demonstrations, as well as a chance to meet and hang out with others in the vanlife community.
Doors open at 3pm on Friday the 12th, with an opening talk and training session at 5pm. Topics covered during this short evening session will be:
Saturday is a full day of construction demos and interactive teaching.
Sunday will be a short session from 9am (doors open at 8:30) until noon.
You can get in touch with Ross Lukeman via email at [email protected] or call 713-816-3476.
This workshop will feature the latest and greatest in van components and technology, and give you the clarity and training to pull off a high-quality van conversion without a bunch of mistakes or design flaws. It is the only training of its kind in the U.S. (or probably the world) at this time. If you put in the effort to make it to Austin, it's going to make your project that much easier later on.
It may happen in the future, but at this time there are no fixed plans to offer this workshop at a later time in another place.
